"IMPEACH EARL WARREN"  Postcard

This is a postcard of a road sign calling for the impeachment of controversial Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren.

The main reasons the advocates for the impeachment of Warren were agitated about him were twofold. First, opponents believed the Supreme Court had abrogated to itself the power of establishing political policies previously the exclusive province of elected legislative bodies. And secondly, they disapproved of the direction of those policies, which were generally perceived as liberal polices that could not be enacted by legislative bodies because they had insufficient support from voters (e.g., prohibiting school prayer, revising state electoral districts, giving criminals more protections and creating new "privacy" rights, such as abortion) Even some people who supported most of the liberal policies of the Court believed they should be implemented only when they achieved majority electoral support and were passed by elected legislators rather than the Supreme Court.

The postcard is in nice condition as shown above
